Dean Windass believes that Tottenham Hotspur needed to pay £50m to secure Adama Traore from Wolves in the summer.
The winger was reported to be a target for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side in the transfer window.
Reports claimed that Spurs had made a loan bid for Traore, with the option to buy him at the end of the season.
The Spain international has emerged as a star during his time at Wolves, tearing defences apart with his pace and his close control.
His end product does leave something to be desired, however, as he has failed to score a goal or provide an assist in the 2021/22 season, with Wolves yet to win a game.
Windass believes Spurs needed to pay a major fee to bring the player into the club.
The north London club ended the summer with the signings of Bryan Gil, Emerson Royal, Pape Sarr, Pierluigi Gollini, and Cristian Romero.
Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, Windass said: “Obviously Nuno fancies him. It’s difficult. You could play him down the middle, but Harry Kane’s staying now, you could play him down the right hand side, he’s the quickest player in the Premier League.
“That’s what Nuno’s saying, that he’ll get us up the pitch. 50 million would be a fair reflection, I think. Wolves would have been happy with 50 million.”
